Am I right in thinking that the Chromebook Pixel is the cheapest retina-class laptop you can buy? Is there an equivalent in the Windows world?

Just Mac I believe. Windows laptops are still stuck at 1080p. Though to be fair the chips in these ultrabooks can barely push the "retina" level of pixels fast enough.
Remember, "Retina" is just a term referring to any display in which you can't distinguish individual pixels from a normal viewing distance. For phones, this limit is 300+ PPI. For tablets, it's about 250 PPI. For laptops (which are a lot farther from your eyes), it's about 165-170 PPI. 

So many Windows laptops, such as the Asus Zenbook Prime, actually are indeed "Retina"-class.
